Taste It! at The World Of Coca-Cola

by Pam on July 28, 2014

My family received complimentary tickets to the World of Coca-Cola through the travel campaign with New Creative Media.   All opinions expressed are  my own and my family’s. Any additional expenses incurred were my own.  
When I was homeschooled and my dad worked as a district manager, we travelled a lot as a family. Although I didn’t appreciate all of my experiences at the time, there was one thing I was always excited to see. That was the World of Coca-Cola, in Atlanta, Georgia. Near the end of his district manager days with that company, we heard that the World of Coca-Cola was going to be moved into a brand new, even better building. That was years ago, but I never found the time to make the two hour drive to see the new one.

Our pets are very important to us. Sure, they don’t talk much, but they’re always there for me. Whether I’m trying to write a blog post on the couch, cooking a meal for the family, taking a rare nap, or cleaning the house, the cats are constantly “helping.” Since the cats do so much around the house- hey, someone has to “sample” all the food that drops to the floor, and that couch isn’t going to shed on itself- I like to make sure my cats are in tip-top shape. Whether this means special foods, a holistic vet, or frequent belly rubs, I treat my cats like I would treat my family.

When my daughter was younger, my house always seemed to be full of teenagers coming and going. Sometimes they would dirty up my kitchen with their latest recipe creations, and sometimes they would plop down on the couch for a marathon of their favorite TV shows. Over the years, with my daughter and her friends moving away from our hometown, my house has gotten quieter, cleaner, and less stinky.

The first time I visited The High Museum of Art, I was a sophomore in high school, taking my first high school art class. We saw the special exhibit, though I don’t remember what it was, and spent several hours exploring the rest of the museum with our class. Even though we had to write a paper about our experiences later, the excitement of actually seeing famous artworks in person was enough to overshadow the distaste I had for writing papers. Years later, I finally got the chance to visit the museum again, this time with my mom and husband. We were there to visit the special exhibit, “Dream Cars,” which features some of the coolest concept cars throughout history. While we were there, we also got to check out the rest of the museum and the exhibit in the plaza called “Mi Casa, Your Casa.”

I absolutely love to travel. My bucket list is mainly travel destinations. I have said, with utter seriousness, when the kids are out of school I plan to start a new career as an airline stewardess so I can travel often.  This could be a problem since flying early in the morning without adequate sleep makes me a little queasy, but I will figure it out!  Naturally, when I heard World Market had teamed up with Disney for a promotion of their new movie, The Hundred Foot Journey, I was intrigued. I knew they always have the best travel sweepstakes that I have not been lucky enough to win-yet.  I plan to keep trying!  I was right! Check out their latest, the #GourmetGetaway sweepstakes.  Beginning July 15th until August 15th, anyone can enter for a chance to win:
